Meet the Team

Surgical staff

In addition to our talented surgeons, our team at Mission Oral Surgery also includes our experienced, certified oral and maxillofacial surgical dental assistants and Registered Nurses (RN). These healthcare professionals assist in the administration of IV sedation and surgery, and are available for any questions or concerns you may have about your procedure.

Our staff are also trained administrative personnel, who are well versed in health and insurance policies.

3D imaging

The Kodak 9000 3D system gives our oral and maxillofacial practice state-of-the-art technology to help Drs. Edwards or Goos diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation.
